Went to an enjoyable workshop last Saturday and have just completed the project tonight. It was making a Elizabethan sweetie bag with silk papers. The tutor was Ann Holden. The top machine line is a bit wonky, but apart from that I am happy how the bag has turned out.

Annie decided she wanted wings, just in case she wanted to made a quick get away.

Well, you can have a good laugh at my little blobby friends. They are my first attempt to scuplture by needle felting and were fun to do. The first two are about an inch tall, the other one is about 2.5 inches. Eventually, if I'm any good at it, I would like to try doing a dolls face and body. In the meantime, its practise, practise, practise.

This brooch is made by Kanzashi, Japanese folding, it looks easy until you try.

Annie has had a hairdo, nails varnished, now she wondering whether she should have a pair of wings. Decisions, decisions.

Annie is a little closer to being finished, a little more embellishing. Annie has asked if she could have her nails painted.

A little bit more has been done on Annie. She's been given a new pair of hands, a pair of ears. Her head and legs have been added. Annie's dress top and shoes have been embellished with beads and silk ribbon, just waiting for her skirt to be made.
